Buckingham Multifamily Fund 1


Buckingham Multifamily Fund I, LP was established in May 2018 to acquire, own, and operate institutional quality value-add suburban multifamily residential properties in vibrant, yield-oriented, secondary markets in the Midwest and Southeast U.S. while leveraging Buckingham’s vertically integrated real estate platform to increase operational efficiency.


Focus on delivering strong returns through value-add capital expenditures including renovations tailored to maximize rent premiums.

The Fund invests in markets with superior job growth and rent to income ratios compared to gateway markets and national averages. Targeted suburban garden-style multifamily investment has provided superior recent returns and comparable twenty-year returns when compared to urban product, with markedly lower volatility. Performance outcomes are consistent with the increase in the market for workforce households and the increase in urban core deliveries since 2012.
